[Movies] Thomas Sadoski & Michiel Huisman Join Wild Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 10.11.2013
Starring Reese Witherspoon...
Two HBO stars are set for Reese Witherspoon's next film. Fox Searchlight Pictures announced today that production had begun in Oregon on Wild, which is directed by Jean-Marc Vallée and stars Witherspoon; embedded in the release was the reveal that Thomas Sadoski (The Newsroom) and Michiel Huisman (Treme) were co-starring in the film along with W. Earl Brown, Gaby Hoffman and Kevin Rankin. The film was written by Nick Hornby (High Fidelity) based on Cheryl Strayed's New York Times #1 best-seller of the same name as the film.
With the dissolution of her marriage and the death of her mother, Cheryl Strayed (Witherspoon) has lost all hope. After years of reckless, destructive behavior, she makes a rash decision. With absolutely no experience, driven only by sheer determination, Cheryl hikes more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, alone. Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddens, strengthens, and ultimately heals her.
